This 19th-century Grade II listed cottage is in a wonderfully secluded location boasting access to a private beach and is perfectly situated to explore Lyme Regis and the rugged coastline in both directions.

Situated between two coastal villages, this cottage enjoys peace and tranquillity whilst sitting within easy reach of many of the nearby attractions on offer. Head out for an energetic walk down to the estate’s very own private beach located 1 mile away. Just 3.5 miles away is the wonderful seaside town of Lyme Regis, home to a great museum, the Town Mill art gallery and an abundance of independent shops, eateries and welcoming pubs. Venture 13 miles inland to arrive in the very heart of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offering picturesque walking trails in all directions.

Upon entry into this spacious one-level cottage which sits within the owner’s gravelled courtyard, you will find oak floors and original features creating a homely feel throughout. A high to low sloping ceiling runs the length of the building. Step up through the entrance door into the open-plan beamed space home to the kitchen, lounge and dining area. Rustle up some homecooked food in the well-equipped kitchen with oak worktops and a dishwasher, before retreating to the lounge area to unwind in front of the TV with DVD and Blu-ray. When the day is done make your way to the bright and airy restful beamed double bedroom complete with a seaside theme and nautical trinkets offering a peaceful night’s sleep. The spacious shower room sits next door to the bedroom.

There’s much to enjoy outside also, with a small secluded garden sitting beyond a gate across the courtyard with a pretty lawn and terraced area. The bistro table and chairs offer a relaxing space to enjoy a spot of al fresco dining as you take in your peaceful location. Furthermore, you can follow the trail, descending through the surrounding countryside to arrive at the estate’s private beach, a very special treat indeed. There is off-road parking for one car.

Fantastic location, well equipped and immaculately clean and 'quirky' cottage.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
